Product Description

From Library Journal

From 1870 to 1939, the Taverner family faces one misfortune after another. Their estate near Bath, England, draws family members together but also magnifies their animosities. Taverner men die in military conflicts from the Crimea to South Africa to Spain. Those who survive rarely find professional or personal joy. The women range from bubbleheaded socialites to political journalists. Madness, impotence, adultery, and other soap-opera components fill the pages. Readers will likely echo the sentiments of one of the characters who speaks halfway through the book, "I do not think . . . that there is any disaster left to happen." How wrong she is.

From the Back Cover

The Taverners had lived at Buscombe, the mellow stone manor house in Wiltshire, for generations. They had farmed the land and sent their sons to war (and even, latterly, to commerce) in a way of life that seemed timeless. But in 1870 a new generation is about to take control - Tom Taverner, dedicated, impulsive, deeply caring about his inheritance, and his sister Catherine, intelligent, humorous, but frustrated by the limited opportunities open to women in a man's world. Tom marries, and agricultural depression hits the estate. And suddenly it seems that everything which was so secure can no longer hold.

Stretching in time from the 1870s to the outbreak of the Second World War, and in distance from Crete to East Africa, this warmly satisfying novel is a triumph of storytelling. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
